Lots O Stuff

Didn't realize it had been this long since I updated here. >_>

The main thing to report is that I'm getting a bunch of my stuff ready for publishing on OUYA. Yay!
Here's a list of the ones I'm planning on bring over:
-Megatank (v2)
-Laser Carrot Attack (v2)
-Fire Arrow
-Flying V (remix/V5/OUYA Edition/whatever)
- (unnamed Space Harrier type game)
- (unnamed dragon game)

The other thing is that I started experimenting with a little paper doll animation thing that could in theory be used to build a fighting game (or something more interesting, hopefully.)

As you can see, even only using an incomplete graphics set (no side or back views yet), it can yield some interesting results. I've even made it to export all the pertinent data for each animation frame. The issue is, though, that the amount of data that needed exporting took me aback somewhat. Somehow, an 8-frame kick animation managed to take up 900+ lines! Granted, that's with every variable hogging the whole line for itself; but still.

Basically, I'm going to have to figure out some clever loading/data crunching scheme if I ever plan to use any of this stuff.. which I would really like to.
